New free games offer for PSPgo

Anyone registering their handheld after April 1st 2010 will get ten free full-game downloads

Sony will shortly announce a brand new incentive scheme to encourage sales of the digital-only PSPgo, MCV can exclusively reveal.

The offer will entitle anyone who registered their PSPgo after April 1st 2010 to ten full game downloads. Titles in the deal include Gran Turismo, LittleBigPlanet, 2010 FIFA World Cup and Grand Theft Auto.

The deal follows the announcement of a PSP Essentials budget software range that will see several triple-A titles available both on UMD and digitally for just £9.99.

On PSPgo weve decided to innovate with that particular business model, SCE UK sales director Mark Howsen told MCV. Next month were launching a free ten game offer. And this isnt just older titles weve worked with third parties and theres some really good core products.

Were using it as a method to drive the hardware as well by making the whole proposition much more appealing.

The new deal follows similar offers last year that included one free download for new PSPgo owners and a further three free downloads for anyone upgrading from an older PSP model.

MCVs full interview with Mark Howsen will be appearing exclusively online later this week.

You've hit the snag with the PSP Go with that single statement.

Most of the digital delivery games via the PlayStation Store are more expensive than their Universal Media Disc counterparts. This is by design so that high street stores & online retailers still have an incentive to sell the console hardware. If the PlayStation Store prices were undercutting the typical retailers' list prices then they would have no motivation to sell the hardware any longer.

It is the ongoing need for software where the highest profit margins are made in the video game retail industry.

I did say, "most", however, Some titles on the PlayStation Store are cheaper than the comparable physical assets. Like the regular discounts I post as deals every fortnight, the digital delivery titles are often reduced (for a limited period).

Also, the "minis" range of titles (now mostly playable on the PS3, but designed for the PSP/PSP Go) are available. These are Sony's equivalent of Apple's "App Store" titles; at a relatively cheap price & with a relatively "casual" gaming audience.

Personally I favour physical assets (as I have mentioned before), but a PSP Go does have some positives; the fact it supports Bluetooth connectivity means you play titles via the PS3 "Remote Play" facility using a SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 controller, for instance.

[EDIT]: Are you aware of the "Remote Play" feature?

Yes, it does sound very attractive given the cost of the titles mentioned in the article I quoted from.

However, titles bought via digital delivery cannot be sold, or transferred to a new owner (if you wish to part with your PSP [Go] console) unless you also part with the PlayStation Network account that you used to purchase them.

As soon as a new owner registers their own PlayStation Network account details on the console the downloaded content is unusable.

Bear that in mind if you ever see a pre-owned PSP Go console being offered for sale with a selection of downloaded games. Unless you use the existing owner's PlayStation Network account you will not be able to use the games.

I would imagine that if not in the next two weeks the offer will be announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) [the annual trade show for the computer & video games industry, now in the sixteenth consecutive year); 15 to 17 June 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Microsoft, Nintendo, & Sony each have their typical press conference days booked in which to make such announcements.

Sony's & Nintendo's conferences are being held on the opening day, and Microsoft's (for reasons best known to 'themselves' this year) is split into two; one concerned with Project Natal on 13 June & the other (an Xbox 360 Media Briefing) on 14 June 2010.

PS. More titles as reported by Engadget.com (via Gameindustry.biz quoting the article I opened this thread with at MCVUK.com):

(By Donald Melanson posted May 26th 2010 7:22PM)

Engadget.com

We're not sure if this is the "relaunch" that we've been hearing about, but it looks like PSP Go buyers in the UK will soon have one big new reason to consider the UMD-less handheld -- Sony says that it'll be throwing in a whopping ten free game downloads with each system. That deal will apparently also apply to at least some existing PSP Go customers (those that registered their system after April 1st), and it looks like you'll get a surprisingly solid lineup of games, including titles like Little Big Planet, Gran Turismo, Wipout Pure, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and Need for Speed Shift, to name a few. Unfortunately, there's no indication on when or if the promotion will launch over here, with SCE's UK sales director Mark Howsen only confirming that it will be rolling out in the UK "next month."

Hmmm... good question. Have you "shared" content like this before with multiple PlayStation Portable consoles, or just with PS3-specific content on different PS3 consoles?

The honest answer is that I do not know.

However, I can surmise that you would have to create (or set-up) the "master" PlayStation Network account on all the devices & re-download the digital content to each individual console. Note that you cannot be logged-in to a PlayStation Network account concurrently on more than one console (PSP, PSP Go, &/or PS3).

I would be surprised if any of the titles offered expected an active log-in to a PlayStation Network account during play (as this would not always be possible depending on where the PSP Go was located), but I would be even more surprised if Sony was offering such a large quantity of games to be concurrently used across multiple consoles.

They have probably implemented a strategy to allow the same console to re-download the same titles multiple times (in the event of loss of a memory card), but with the loss of an entire console the previous PlayStation Network account would have to be closed & the right to the downloadable titles would then be lost also. I am guessing that this is why the method of downloading the PSP Theme in advance has been used. Perhaps this is a single "once only" download, but without this present on the console the other titles cannot be downloaded to it.

Of course, this is just my opinion from the information I have read to date.

I'm sure somebody (not necessary in a HotUKDeals thread) will report back on such findings once the promotion period has started.

Have you tried posing the same question in the other thread (within the "Freebies" section) discussing the same topic in case another HotUKDeals member can offer their insight?

Always kind of wanted a PSPgo, so like the sound of this very much, however I am sure I would end up selling it after the novelty wore off. If I were to download all the games to a new PSN account (ie not the one I use on our PS3 consoles), would it be possible for a 2nd user (assuming I sell it - the buyer) to change the address/name/password etc the account is registered to so that they can keep the games and lock me from the account? I guess you wouldn't be able to change the actual user name though...

Also, is it likely all second hand pspgo's will have been logged into the psn at one point? Only I have a rather large CEX voucher I would like to get rid of, but would be pointless if I could not obtain the free games.

I was just thinking the same thing about creating a brand new master account just for the psp go, which if you decided to sell could tell the new buyer the password and then they'd be able to change the details(tho before selling would be a good idea to remove any credit cards and edit the email and home address, or apart from the credit card bit is it me just being paranoid? :) ).

as for used psp gos, I'd assume they'd have logged in otherwise wouldn't be able to play any games. if you're lucky might find one that hasn't been logged into.

I'm tempted to get one but having no job plus recently having bought the htc desire(£400) and canon ef 70-200 f4l(used £394), not sure if I should be spending anymore on unnecessary items :)

You can use a PSP Go console without creating a new, or logging-in to an existing, PlayStation Network account.

Not everybody wishes to play games; some are just bought for media player devices to play audio &/or video files from the internal memory or via external memory cards.

Yes, if you wished to you may create a new account solely for the PSP Go offer described above, not register any credit card details, download the (ten) free titles, then sit on the console until October & sell it on (hopefully) for a profit if you were so inclined.

Any personal details can (& should) be removed before selling any device to any other owner. That goes without saying I would have thought.

For me, though, I am looking at the list of titles in this offer, & I would only play (& hence buy) four of them, so the purchase of a PSP Go console (even with the offer of the free games) is still not an incentive in its own right as I would be spending more for the hardware than I am saving buying the games (two of which I own on Universal Media Disc already).

That said, if you were going to make use of all the titles & were tempted to buy a PSP Go console anyway then this is an extremely cost effective way of owning them.

You do have the issue of resale in the future though as the games are tied to the PlayStation Network account used to download them. Once the account details are removed from the PSP Go console then the titles cannot be used by any other PlayStation Network account (so the new owner is just buying the hardware).

If only Sony have offered this promotion on the day of release of the PSP Go console then many more would be owned & owners would be more inclined to use the PlayStation Store to download further games.

It has certainly been a painful lesson for them, but I trust one that they will learn one for future iterations of the PSP platform.

SCEE president says UMD-free handheld was a test of consumer behaviour

[CENTER]http://www.mcvuk.com/static/images/news/39317/184_17312_AndrewHouse_SCEE.jpg?i=1275928728[/CENTER]

Though it’s looking unlikely that E3 will be the venue Sony chooses to unveil its in-development successor to the PSP, the platform holder has admitted that pioneering digital-only handheld PSPgo was a test for its future plans in the handheld sector.

Sony has never released sales numbers for the machine. When asked if it regards the PSPgo as a sales success, SCEE president and CEO Andrew House replied: “It was introduced in a mature lifecycle to learn more about what the consumer wanted and we’ve definitely learnt a lot.

“Is that measured by success in sales? I don’t think it is.

“One of the reasons we launched PSPgo was to understand where that consumer behaviour was going. We were getting signals from consumers that this was the kind of device that they wanted. But we need to recognise that consumers like their packaged media library.”

MCV has spoken to each of the three platform holders in its E3 Special Edition, which will be circulated at the LA event next week. To read the interviews in full, make sure you check MCV magazine this Friday.

I have also exchanged messages with another HotUKDeals member who bought a PSPgo in the UK (from Amazon.co.uk) & used it to take advantage of the US only "LittleBigPlanet"/"Assassin's Creed Bloodlines" PSPgo Rewards Scheme offer. This was achieved by using a US-based PlayStation Network account on the console.

Additional information:

I purchased a pre-owned (but unused) PSPgo console recently. It was initially purchased before 1 April 2010. The item met the requirements of the Legal Promotion text I quoted in comment #2 above.

At 12:50pm yesterday I entered my existing PlayStation Network Account details on the console & ten minutes later I downloaded the required "PSP™go Promotion Theme (PSP™go only) (PSP)" item from the PlayStation Store's "Latest" category.

I received an e-mail at 9:54am this morning containing the "PSPgo: PROMOTION CODE REDEMPTION INSTRUCTIONS".

Hi all - have set it up and it says the theme is downloaded - do I need to do anything else now - open the theme etc (can't seem to find where it's been put!) or do I just sit back and wait for the email??
#32
Hi,

Welcome to the small (but perfectly formed) & growing (by the deal listings this week) club of PSPgo owners :)

No, you do not need to preview or set the theme on your console; just the fact that you downloaded it is sufficient to trigger the process to send you a message to the e-mail address associated with your PlayStation Network account.

If you wish to view the Theme, though...

Navigate to the far left of the XrossMediaBar to see the "Settings" menu.
Scroll down to locate the "Theme" option & press the [X] button.
Below the text "Custom Theme" you will be able to highlight any Theme installed on your console (including the one you have just downloaded).

As you scroll down the list available a "preview" will be shown behind the menu navigation text.
Once previewed, if you wish to apply the Theme you are 'hovering' over then click [X] again & follow the prompts on-screen.

If that Theme does not interest you, there are plenty more available (for free, or at cost) from PlayStation Store.

Fingers-crossed you can beat the turn-around time with my e-mailed code (comment #25).

Does this sound right??? I fully charged the console yesterday, and left it on (what I think is standby - the clock was just showing) and this morning the condole was flat and I have had to charge it again? Is this normal - should I have switched it off yesterday - does it not have standby??

Hi. Regarding the code dispatch time:

Just wanted to say that my code arrived this morning (although I'm at work and far from the PSP oO ). I managed to get the theme sometime around midnight on tuesday, spent wednesday eve getting some demos, and this morning (thursday) I have the voucher in my inbox. So less than 48 hours, which I was hoping for but thought was just wishful thinking. Well done, Sony!

Thanks for posting, nodham.

It does seem (from a couple of the recent PSPgo deal threads) that some members have been waiting much longer than you, unfortunately.

Have any of the demos you downloaded enticed you to buy the full versions?

Well my the connection still timed out overnight leaving me with only two of the downloads, but other than that I consider myself lucky - I'm usually the one to get the non-working things, the delayed things, etc.

I quite liked Ridge Racer 2, that brings back memories, so I may look into that, although there are a few racing games already included in the pack that'll tide me over for now. (Still disappointed with beaterator instead of GTA)
I wanted to see what the deal was with Loco Roco, and I get it. I'll be getting it later. :) And Patapon was quite fun too, although I'm not sure what a full game of that sort of gameplay would be like.
